Planning on taking a cruise in the caribbean? These five tips will help you make your cruise a great one!

1. Everyone thinks of only one clothing item to pack when planning a Caribbean cruise; their swimsuit. Eventually, several tank tops and shorts are packed, as well. Mother Nature can be very unpredictable, so you should always include a light jacket and at least one set of warm clothing, as rainy days and cool weather can sometimes surprise the most well prepared travelers. When filling your suitcase, be sure to remember sun block, sunglasses and sun burn ointment, just in case. To ensure maximum enjoyment, bring your camera, some reading material and your favorite portable music player with music.

Learning how to sail isn’t hard if you’re near water, since chances are there will be a sailing school near you. Our local school is the California Yacht Club, which sails with four-person Martin M242 Yachts every week. We met up with two members of the club, support boat specialist Mike George (he did the water shots for Baywatch for 13 years!), and Pease Glaser, a former sailor for the U.S. team. Leah finds out about the different components of a sail boat, how to raise a sail, and even how to sail against the wind. Join her by watching today’s episode!

The first is fitted with twin MTU diesel engines totaling 7400 horsepower. Combined with two Kamewa Rolls-Royce water-jet drives, the yacht can reach a top speed of 43 knots. The second version boasts all of that plus a 5100-horsepower Textron Lycoming turbine that can produce a whopping 57-knot maximum speed.

With two sun decks complete with a retractable bimini top and an adjustable semi-circular sofa a roomy gadget-laden cockpit, a private study and media room, a full-beam master cabin suite, three guest cabins each with a private bathroom, three crew cabins, and a spacious galley, the 115-footer can entertain up to 22 people.

The yacht is valued at more than 12 million euros ($14.5 million) and was recently on display at European boat shows.
